Field Trips

Katie Beth in Mexico

Field trips are fun! While making memories that last forever, field trips break the monotony of the routine! Moms and children both need to get out and enjoy the adventures that field trips can bring! Not only refreshing, they are educational too.

Send us your field trips ideas and we will add them to the page.

Shopping at the Pumpkin Patch

Playgrounds!

Always fun for children to swing, slide and run around! Our favorite is "Park on Park" on Park Ave. in historic Sanford.

Feed the Ducks!

Find a lake (there are millions here in Florida!) and look for the ducks to feed. For those who live in Florida: DON'T FEED ALIGATORS!!!!!!!!!

Alligators

Airports!

Start with a tour of the airport and a plane. You can meet different people who work there: security personnel, pilots, air traffic controllers, stewardesses and ticket agents.

Fire Stations!

Children love fire trucks. Climb aboard and learn all about the jobs that firemen and rescue personnel do!

Banks!

Tour the bank, learn how to open a checking account and see inside the vault! When we went on a field trip to the bank, the children enjoyed learning all about money.

Police Stations, Courthouses, & Jails!

When I was a little girl, we walked through a county jail and it scared me to death. I never wanted to be a "bad girl" after that! However, we had a happy time at the Seminole county sheriff's office where we met police dogs, SWAT team members, and helicopter pilots. The best was the amphibious tank!

Local Universities & Community Colleges

Our local community college offers free band and chorale concerts. They also have a planetarium that is open to the public. We have had a wonderful time enjoying plays, art exhibits, and speakersall for free or a small admission fee!

Festivals

Greek festivals or Civil War reenactments abound! Sometimes there is an admission fee, and sometimes they are free. But what fun to attend festivals as a field trip. When we lived in Virginia Beach years ago, we enjoyed the Pungo Strawberry Festival. Did I mention the delicious food?
